Did you really need another reason to love Amy Poehler? Probably not, but you just got one.
On July 2nd, Poehler and friends launched the Smart Girls Channel on YouTube, that includes a video series called “Ask Amy,” in which young girls email Poehler with their questions. In the premiere episode below, Poehler gives advice to a 14-year-old girl who’s dying to wear makeup just like her friends, but her dad won’t let her.
Amy is so kind and sweet and reassuring and all those things that you would want your mentor or mom or older sister to be that you can’t help but get wrapped up in her supportive advice and, well, cry. I actually cried tears of joy that someone like Poehler has taken it upon herself to do such a cute and fun series for “tweens,” and because I love her so much! She’s comfortably laying on her stomach on her bed dolling out advice like she’s at a slumber party and the brownies are finishing up in the oven! It’s great!
